Thee, we adore, O Savior, God most true

Full Text

1 Thee, we adore, O Savior, God most true,
thy glory clothed in bread and wine anew;
our hearts to thee in true devotion bow,
in humble awe, we hail thy presence now.

2 O true remembrance of Christ crucified,
the bread of life to us for whom he died;
lend us this life then; feed and east our mind,
be thou the sweetness we were meant to find.

3 Fountain of goodness, Jesus, Lord and God,
cleanse us, O Christ, with thy most cleansing blood;
increase our faith and love, that we may know
the hope and peace which from thy presence flow.

4 Jesus, by faith we see thee here below;
send us, we pray thee, what we thirst for so:
some-day to gaze upon thy face in light,
blest evermore with thy full glory's right.

Amen.
